Inputs (inputs_africa)

Productivity and variety of crops interpreted as availability of agricultural by products as inputs for fish farming. The objective of this map is to indicate the locations, availability and variety of agricultural by-products that could be used as inputs for fish farming. These can be related to agronomic suitability as measured by the length of growing period (LGP). Agro-ecological zones for 11 crops were defined for Africa by FAO (1978). LGP was calculated from data collected from 730 stations and plotted at 30-day intervals at 1:5 million scale.
